A new trailer was released this morning showcasing six new Pokémon for Sun & Moon, combat gameplay with the newbies, and a couple other new mechanics.

Below you will find some details on the new pocket monsters, and in the trailer you will find details about some new online multiplayer options, as well as hyper training, which will allow you to level individual strengths for the first time in the series.

Pokémon Sun & Moon releases November 18 for 3DS.

Name: Wimpod
Type: Bug/Water
Wimpod is the Turn Tail Pokémon. This Pokémon is a cowardly scavenger that eats or stores anything that’s been dropped in the sea meaning it is highly valued across the Alola region as a cleaner of the sea. Wimpod has the new Ability Wimp Out which causes this Pokémon to run away or swap out for another Pokémon when its HP drops below half in battle.

Name: Bounsweet
Type: Grass
Bounsweet is the Fruit Pokémon which gives off a delicious aroma. This aroma has a calming effect on humans, so many people across Alola let them live inside their homes as an air freshener.

Name: Comfey
Type: Fairy
The Posey Picker Pokémon Comfey picks flowers which it carries around with it. Comfey uses its soothing aroma to help treat people and Pokémon at Pokémon Centers and hospitals.

Name: Mudsdale
Type: Ground
Mudslade is the Draft Horse Pokémon with incredible power and stamina. Its legs are coated in a protective mud and its kick can destroy a car in a single blow. Mudslade has the Ability Stamina, a new Ability which raises a Pokémon’s Defense by one when hit by an attack.

Name: Bewear
Type: Normal/Fighting
Bewear is the Strong Arm Pokémon that must never be approached carelessly. With its strong and highly developed arms and legs, Bewear loves to give crushing bear hugs that will split anything in two.

Name: Mimikyu
Type: Ghost/Fairy
As the Disguised Pokémon, Mimikyu lives its life constantly covered by its cloth. Mimikyu’s Disguise Ability allows it to escape danger from an enemy’s attack once, then its appearance changes.
